Afternoon,
Having now researched a carb option for my 8v engine, I am also looking at throttle bodies. Does anyone here have any experience of using the Weber Alpha system? I ask as they seem to have a complete kit including loom, sensors, manifold, bodies, coil and ancillaries.

not many mappers about that do weber kit, better off with a DTA or OMEX, much more support for them.

Weber Alpha is a very rare set up, I must say when I have dealt with them the back up was good but as said the lack of mappers is the main issue and the system now is very old so the likes of Omex, Emerald etc are better all round and the re-sale value is allot better as well

Thank you. Having read the installation guide for the Weber system that was written in 2001 I had begun to suspect that it is a system that is getting a bit long in the tooth, but seemed attractive as it was such a complete kit. I will continue to do my research.
Thanks for your input,
Andy

It would just be a universal kit with the old trigger wheel mounted on the front pulley and universal loom, the nice way is to replace the flywheel and use the OE fittings along with coil pack housing so no need for brackets, OE leads etc,which of course a supplier would not list nor supply, if you need a quote drop me a PM
